Kalalliit Nunaat

All the photos of Greenland were taken in mid-March 2011 in Quasianguit and Illulisat townships. The reason for the trip was to see friends working there, but also to fulfill a decade-long desire to see the land of the Inuit. March is usually the coldest month of the year, but also one with roughly equal night and day. It is the hunting season of Musk Ox, peak fishing time and usually the pack ice is solid enough for long oversea dog sledding trips. The temperatures dipped to -27 Celcius, both hurricane-force blizzards and tranquil calm was experienced in the ten days I spent there. And the aurora borealis made its appearance on two magical yet frigid nights.
